FROM OWN GARDEN

1 small windmill and 155 solar panels

“Our dairy farming started in 1999, after a land consolidation with my brother,” says Smit. It eventually led to the construction of a windmill and the installation of solar panels. But when the permit was finally completed, there was nothing left to stand in the way of the installation. He outlines how his dairy farming has grown over the years into a company with about 120 cows and 2 milking robots. That led him to build a windmill and install solar panels.

“Efficiency comes first for me”

“Using the wind and harnessing it to generate energy for my farm just makes sense to me as a farmer. BestWatt stands for reliability and trust. Even though obtaining the building permit wasn’t easy, BestWatt successfully secured it.”

“The important and right step”

“I have been operating large wind turbines since 1994, and since 2005, I’ve been running an agricultural business in the eastern hill country of Schleswig-Holstein, also equipped with biogas and PV systems on the roofs. I always wanted to cover my operational electricity needs sustainably and therefore sought a supplement for the ‘dark’ season in addition to the PV electricity I generated myself.
That’s why I installed the BestWatt 30 in July 2019 as an ‘island system’ and was able to achieve my goal optimally, even managing to power our four electric cars and the electric wheel loader throughout the year. This is how I see maximum added value realized.
Today, my electricity consumption from the public grid has been reduced by 99.5%.”

The first BestWatt 30 in Rheinland-Pfalz

“The BestWatt 30 impresses me with its performance even at low wind speeds. BestWatt handled the approval process for me and made it a success. Now I can efficiently power my organic farm with milking robots using renewable energy, completely CO²-free.”
